Last year, I released a demo version of my magnum opus, Sutoraiku High, a visual novel about drama, friendships, prejudice, bullying, total societal upheaval, and high school romance, with an anticipated release date of April 2020. I am happy to announce that today is April 2020, and accordingly, you can now finally play the full story of Sutoraiku High, complete with full-color character portraits, four in-game days of content, even more dramatic twists, eight endings, and obnoxiously complicated branching.
The game is currently in open beta, as I anticipate expanding on it later with a couple of additional endings, more character expressions, and possibly music, additional art, etc. However, to honor the announced release date, I have chosen to make this initial full-story release in this form.
(Please note that this full version of the story contains a bit more violence and some darker themes than were seen in the demo. Let's call it a PG-13.)
Remember the forums? The ones that have been really dead for a few years now? Well, technical issues have finally forced me to upgrade to some actually recent forum software, and since I did that I figured we might as well go for attempting to revive them a little. You can now sign up for the Forum Revival TV Tropes Mafia Revival, which I hope will be a lot of fun - or just enjoy the shiny new features, or complain at me about the bits that didn't quite carry over.
The Favorite Pokémon Picker now has a "Dark mode" (click the link in the top right corner) for users who prefer to work on dark backgrounds. Unfortunately, the Home icons don't look amazing on dark backgrounds; I may see if I can get better results by resizing the larger Home images myself later. But for now, it's at least functional!

Pokémon Go, the augmented-reality mobile game where you look for Pokémon in the real world, has taken the world by storm - but are you playing it?

Let's do this again. Given these are things I want to do, which of them should I do first?
